Habib Sulemani — 17 months in solitary confinement
The Terrorland Report
HABIB R. Sulemani, a Pakistani writer/journalist in solitary
confinement for 17 months, in this exclusive photo http://nblo.gs/mg9O9
, taken yesterday in Rawalpindi, looks outside his cell-like room.
"The two generations of chirping birds in the neighborhood are my best
friends," Mr. Sulemani told a member of The Terrorland Team.
"They sing me sweet songs and I recite them my spontaneously written
poems. We often appreciate each other, but when I write something
against the military establishment, then the crows often agitate!"
Unfortunately, he has stopped writing blogs for The Terrorland without
giving any reason.
This has left the Team shattered, and for over a week, he is being
persuaded to write about his suffering as the whole world is silently
monitoring this worst kind of tyranny and oppression against a writer
in the modern age.
Mr. Sulemani along his family members is under great pressure from the
Pakistani military establishment especially the secret agencies, ISI
and MI, which has isolated him in the militarized and Talibanized
Despite appeals for provision of protection and justice, the fragile
civilian government is still silent due to pressure from the powerful
If you are not aware of the tragedy, then, please, read the related
posts and Mr. Suleamani's poems on The Terrorland group blogs'
